We booked a Library Tour at Raymond's and the whole experience was really fun. Yes, the mannequins and the Vegas-like decor are not for everyone, but the feathers and crystals and mirrors are fun and funky. We spent over an hour in the beautiful Library - tasting wines and learning about the soils, the process, and the history of the... More

Some surprises are good. Finding Frederick's of Hollywood at a Napa winery is not good. Our tour started just fine with looking at appellation terroir samples in an elegant library. The sensory evaluation area was very interesting. Then came the nice, but odd, jaunt through the garden area, a mix of organic farming techniques and astrological mysticism. When we entered... More

Nice staff and grounds- inside has the most unique and one of a kind tasting areas- the red room, crystal tasting room, stainless steel- all quite wild. Outdoor nature theatre garden- nice to see with friendly goats. We weren't that fond of their wines- the cabs and Chardonnay were okay- not great. Still always fun to try wines, just not... More

There were so many other different things to do here above and beyond tasting the great wines. The smelling activity was really fun and the pictures hanging around were so neat. We didn't have the time to do everything there but it could be a multi-hour experience. The lady who helped us was so friendly and helpful. Along with Black... More

I loved the decor here, very different. I also loved that our tasting was in a private room at a table all lit up with different colors. I really enjoyed the personalized tastings and walking through the different rooms. I get bored of the usual "how they make wine" tours and preferred this type of tour. Really cool place.

Last years winery of the year. Not sure what the criteria for that is but they offer many different tasting experiences. Unique experiences in unique settings. And they have two labels, Raymond as well as Frenchie.

We were going to go to a different vineyard but this place was recommended by our concierge.

This is a very cool and trendy winery that certainly knows how to party (or have parties) - the wine was nice and we certainly would have bought some but unfortunately they don't ship to Connecticut.

I love John Legends wine n who doesn't love 2013 generations. The atmosphere has an erotic feel or maybe just Halloween, either very different from other vineyards (at least for the red room). Each wine was wonderful, enjoyed every moment. I wish I had a little cheese but will take this home and enjoy with a cheese n friends. Great... More
